Dear Partners!

Three years ago we began to actively work on the creation of comfortable investment environment in the Orenburg Region. Now, when regions are competing for every lucrative project, we have to modify our policy and; of course, seek new tools and forms of cooperation with investors.

There could be long and abstract discussions about investments and the actions of the authorities in this direction, but do not forget for whom it is all done. I have said and will repeat again: the main potential and pride of the region is because of its people! All our work is aimed at making each resident satisfied with his or her living conditions. Each person will have a sense of well-being only by having a peace of mind and confidence in absolute security. And it is possible only in this region with a stable, effectively-operated economy aimed at further development!

What I begin and finish each conversation with business representatives and investors with is my personal guarantee of direct participation in the development of each investment project ― whether it be small enterprises or large-scale production projects. The doors of my office are always open for investors, and the cell phone is on 24 hours a day. Those with whom we are already working are aware of this!
